Coming Out of Hibernation

Karin is dragging me out of blogging hibernation by tagging me. Thanks Karin!

Rules: Each player answers the question themselves. At the end of the post, the player then tags 5 people and posts their names, then goes to their blog and leaves them a comment letting them know that they’ve been tagged and asking them to read your blog. Let the person who tagged you know when you’ve answered the questions on your blog.

10 Years Ago (1998):
1. Been married to Mike for 3 years
2. Was still able to sleep past 7 a.m. on the weekends (No kids yet.)
3. Getting itchy to leave my corporate communications job (ended up leaving in March '99)
4. If I have the years right, Mike was still back in school which meant I was hanging out at Applebee's a lot while Mike was bartending.
5. Was the weight I want to be at now (sigh).

5 Things on Today's "To Do" List:
(Taking Karin's cue, we'll make this tomorrow since it's almost 9 p.m.)
1. In 65 minutes, get up, shower, dressed, get kids up, fed, dressed and drop them off at school.
2. Work (send out a press release, work on '09 budget)
3. Meet former boss for lunch (incidentally, the boss from my job in 1998!)

You worked at Madigans?? Which one? And maybe, just maybe, I can be convinced to do Chicago '09!!

Hey Karin -- Chicago Ridge Mall Madigan's. I will laugh so hard if you were there too.

C'mon do Chicago '09 . My cousin ran '08 and is doing '09 now too. Said she knows she can do better due to heat.

Ooo, not that one. I worked at Bermans at the Harlem Irving Plaza, but there was a Madigan's there too. hahaha..

I'm so leaning toward Chicago 09. I feels the same way your cousin does. I figure I do enough, I'm bound to get a cool day one time!
